Purbayan Chatterjee – Sitar
Purbayan Chatterjee is one of the finest sitar player belonging to SeniaMaiharGharana founded by Baba Alauddin Khan. His gurus are his father Pandit Parthapratim Chatterjee and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. He has also received vocal training from Pandit Ajay Chakraborty and training in tabla from Pandit Anindo Chatterjee.
Inspired by the tonal quality of Pt. Nikhil Banerjee’s sitar, his music combines the tone and richness of the Nikhil Banerjee style with a contemporary touch of his own urbane sensitivity.
Purbayan regularly collaborates with stalwarts like Shankar Mahadevan, UstadZakir Hussain and the jazz legend Pat Metheny.
Purbayan has several prestigious awards and international albums to his credit. Today, he is one of the most sought-after musicians in the country and a global ambassador for Indian classical music.
